I’ve been wondering why many players use Wild Sword Laoyang.
Apparently it’s because of its skill, Hold L (Large).
Only one weapon each from Short Blade, Boost Hammer and Charge Spear has this skill, which makes it pretty special.
Hold is a status effect for enemy where they would be unable to move for a brief period of time.
I’m not sure how it works (probability? Hidden meter?), but after you’ve slashed the Aragami enough number of times, they’ll be put to this Hold state.
The same effect can be achieved by using Hold Up item, which is basically a trap. You can only bring 2 to the missions so in some sessions, and so I’ve also been wondering how some players manage to Hold the Aragami again and again.
It has another skill, Combo Master, which should increase damage when you’re doing combo.
Combined with the Short Blade’s Blood Arts that gives infinite square combo, when you manage to Hold the Aragami, I guess it’s quite overpowered, especially in group… ^^;
